Warm Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

breakfastquinoa2
Sometimes you need a break from oats. Or if you are trying to live a gluten free life then quinoa is a great option for you. Heck, quinoa is a great option for anyone! With its subtle nutty flavor and slight crunchy texture, this breakfast option is great for kids and adults. It’s also a complete protein so it will keep you full longer. Pick and choose your favorite add-ins: dried fruit, nuts, maple syrup… even chocolate chips!
I always make a large batch of quinoa. That way I have some for the rest of the day/week. I use cold quinoa in salads or heat it up and serve with sautéed greens.
Cook quinoa just like rice – 1 part grain/2 parts liquid
